Emery Signing Is A Good One If…

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull,

Goalie Ray Emery was articulate and honest _ and didn’t throw a single punch at Flyers trainer Jim McCrossin when he was introduced at Wednesday’s news conference in Voorhees.

  OK, that was a cheap shot. But when you come with Emery’s baggage, you expose yourself to all types of criticism.

  That said, Emery could emerge as the bargain of the year.

  The Flyers announced Wednesday they had agreed to a one-year deal with the 6-foot-2, 196-pound Emery. The deal is for $1.5 million, and if Emery returns to his 2006-07 form _ he led Ottawa to the Stanley Cup Finals _ the Flyers will be feeling very good about themselves.

  Though I was in favor of re-signing Marty Biron, I like this move - if it enables the Flyers to sign Jay Bouwmeester or Mike Komisarek, a pair of defensemen who can become free agents on July 1.
